With wartime utilitarianism in the rearview mirror, Harley-Davidson entered the 1950s with the 74-cubic-inch Panhead powertrain, the Hydra-Glide telescopic front end, and refreshing colour schemes that brought new energy to the only surviving American motorcycle manufacturer. One of the most beloved models was the 1956 FLH, which featured a red base colour with a white stripe, known as the “slash” two-tone colour scheme. Now, 75 years after the 1949 introduction of the Hydra-Glide front end, Harley-Davidson is reviving this icon of the Panhead era in serialized limited production.

The Hydra-Glide Revival model is finished in custom Redline Red paint with a Birch White panel on fuel tank sides, the same design featured on 1956 models. Details include chrome “Harley-Davidson V” tank badges inspired by 1955-56 tank badges and “Hydra-Glide” script badges located on the front fender skirt. The serialized “Hydra-Glide Revival” insert on the handlebar riser cap and Icons Motorcycle Collection graphic on the rear fender identify this limited-production model.

Additional styling features include instrument graphics inspired by those on the 1954-55 speedometer. The two-tone 21-inch (53.3 cm) high detachable windshield features a colour-matched lower portion in Redline Red. A chrome round air cleaner cover and chrome steel laced wheels add to the nostalgic look. Front and rear fender trim, engine guard, fork covers, powertrain and exhaust are finished in brilliant chrome.

A solo saddle is finished with a fringed and decorated leather valance, white seam piping and red contrast stitching, and a chrome rail for a nostalgic look. A matching black leather tank strap is embellished with studs and a concho. Leather and vinyl saddlebags are detailed with chrome conchos with acrylic red centres, chrome studs and leather fringe, white seam piping and red contrast stitching. The saddlebags are water-resistant, have keyed locks for security, and have a rigid liner so they will hold their shape season after season.

Nostalgic Look, Modern Performance
The bike features a counter-balanced Milwaukee-Eight® 114 V-Twin engine tuned with a Screamin’ Eagle® High-Flow air cleaner to deliver power with authority. For the rider focused on performance, this engine accepts all applicable Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle® Stage Upgrade kits.

The Softail® chassis hides adjustable mono-shock rear suspension below the seat for dynamic cornering capability and riding comfort while preserving a classic hardtail profile. Electronic cruise control holds a steady speed for comfort on long rides. LED headlamp and auxiliary lamps provide outstanding forward illumination. Standard Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) offers confident control in a variety of riding conditions.

Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection
Together the beat of rock ‘n roll and the syncopated rhythm of a V-Twin engine stir the souls of Harley® riders. The 2024 Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection celebrates the burst of collective energy released by live music at the corner tavern, at a motorcycle rally, or the live stage at the Harley-Davidson Homecoming™ Festival. The Tobacco Fade paint and graphics scheme, inspired by the classic sunburst wood finish first seen on rock and roll guitars, bass, and drums of the 1960s, make this a special motorcycle for any music lover.

Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection models celebrate Harley-Davidson riders and are inspired by their stories and legacies. This collection of Harley-Davidson® motorcycles is available in limited quantities – no more than 2,000 per model – across a curated selection of three motorcycle models.

The Tobacco Fade paint treatment is applied by Harley-Davidson using state-of-the art precision paint tools designed to execute faded panel detailing. A rich caramel-coloured pinstripe accents the tone of the metallic gold panel floating just outside the sunburst fade. The fuel tank medallion is inspired by the shape and grooves of a vinyl record, while a graphic on the front fender shaped like a guitar pick, inspired by rock band and instrument logos, speaks directly to the details in the tank medallion.

Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Collection includes:

Low Rider® ST Model

A summary of key features

The renowned two-tone “slash” paint scheme from the 1956 models is reintroduced in Redline Red and Birch White.

Inspired by a custom 1956 FLH, the solo seat and saddle bags are fringed and embellished with candy-coloured rosettes, white seam piping, and red contrast stitching.

The Hydra-Glide Revival’s detachable, two-tone windshield is period correct and colour matched in Redline Red.

Limited to 1,750 bikes, each individual motorcycle has a serialized “Hydra-Glide Revival” emblem on the handlebar riser cap, as well as an “Icons Motorcycle Collection” graphic on the rear fender.

The 74-cubic-inch Panhead motor was a marvel at the birth of the American highway but is no match for today’s Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-twin, which delivers modern performance and that classic Harley-Davidson look, sound, and feel.

While cruise control made its debut in the ‘50s, it wasn’t featured on the original Hydra-Glide, but we’re sure it would’ve been appreciated by beatniks and other wayfaring riders.

Any old-school hotrodder will tell you to “let that motor breathe,” which is why the Screamin’ Eagle High-Flow Air Cleaner comes standard on the Hydra-Glide Revival.

The lowered, hidden mono-shock suspension of the modern Softail chassis provides that vintage rigid look without any need for an antique kidney belt.
